A friend of mine was approached by a coach that coaches in the Heartland league. To see if his son could guest play with them during league play. Not dual card. His son plays on the missouri side in the Kc Metro League. We didnt know if this was legal or not. Does anyone know?
From the Heartland Rules for Premier Divisions:
3.04 Guest, Multiple roster players & Club Passes
A maximum of three guest players are allowed per team per game.
Teams may not exceed the maximum number of players allowed on the game day roster
by adding guest players.
Players may only play for one team within a sub division, i.e. they may not dual roster or
guest play with another team in the same sub division.
Players may guest play or dual roster “up”, but not “down” within their age group. For
example, a U14 Division 2 player may guest play with a Division 1 team, but not with a
Division 3 team. That player may NOT play in any division lower than Div 2 in his/her
own age group.
A player primary rostered to a team that is older than his/her actual age group may guest
or dual roster with a team playing in highest division of his/her actual age group. For
example an actual U14 player who is primary rostered to a U15 team may play as a guest
or dual roster player with a U14 Division 1 team.
Once a player has played a game for their primary roster team, they are not permitted to
change their primary status and play for a lower division team within the league for that
Teams registering their players via the “Club Pass” option provided by KSYSA must
submit a league roster to the Heartland office prior to it’s first league game. Failure to do
so will result in those games being forfeited until that roster is received. The club pass
roster must clearly show which players are on the league roster. That number must not
exceed the state maximum for that age group. A player who has been excluded from a
league roster, may guest play for that team if he/she is clearly shown on a roster of a team
in a lower division or age group. The appropriate guest player forms must also be
submitted to the referee.
All guest player forms must be taken to the game and submitted to the referee.
